The Birthday Girl
May 28, 2011 § 59 Comments
Miss. Little Red Maple Leaf is officially 1 today! To mark this very special occasion, we made a customized birthday hat for the pipsqueak and surprised her with a decent-looking (i.e. newly purchased, not homemade from hand-me-downs and objects from the recycling bin…for a rewarding change!) stuffed toy that we hope Miss Maple will treasure.
The birthday hat awaits to be throned on the head of our tiny furball.
Teddy also sits, albeit nervously, exposing his vunerable limbs to an inevitable attack by little jaws of terror.
Here they are all together. Someone looks a little embarassed to be seen in her birthday hat which, admittedly, resembles a Dunce Cap… although, there were many times when a Dunce Cap would have been totally appropriate and justified!
But, today, Miss Maple can get away with any misdemeanor she fancies!
Including the less than lady-like attitude she’s showing the camera…
As well as the violent thrashing of poor Teddy, who is bound to lose several parts of his anatomy by the end of the day.
Much to the relief of Teddy, Momsy intervenes and swoops him into the safety of her hand!
At long last, after having gone through the obligatory initiation rites conducted by Miss Maple and her jaws of terror, Teddy is now a newly-minted member in Maple’s stockpile of toys. Welcome to the pack, Teddy!
It’s a nice feeling knowing that MM and I have survived the puppy days without losing all our hair, and that Maple has now blossomed into a fine little lady (well, for the most part, LOL). As much of a handful as she can be on some days, Miss Maple never fails to amuse us with her quirky sense of humour 😉
Happy Birthday, Maple—may there be many more years of joy and laughter with you, little one!

Hey, guess what?! Maple isn’t the only one with a celebration this week. Maple would like to wish her pawpals a very special birthday as they, too, celebrate turning 1!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY to…
- Wyatt the Lab, who turned 1 on May 26th.
- Le Le the Beagle, who shares Maple’s same birthdate!
- Muffin the Toy Poodle, who is eagerly anticipating his 1st birthday on June 1st.
- Hugo the Toy Poodle, the youngest amongst these pups, who turns 1 on June 2nd.
Wishing you all a ‘happy barkday’ — have a pawtastic good time!
